ORL Vs MIL Dream 11 Prediction: Milwaukee revert to winning ways to see normal service resume in the playoffs.
Sitting on a 3-5 record before making a foray in the land of the playoffs, Milwaukee Bucks found themselves in a soup. While the club’s form didn’t make for a massive cause of concern given their journey into the top slot in the Eastern Conference, the defeats did nonetheless spark doubts amongst the side’s ranks.
And the side’s first matchup against Orlando Magic in the playoffs showed that those jitters weren’t without cause. Dumped by 8th seeded Orlando in game 1 of the playoffs, Milwaukee Bucks found themselves of one of the biggest and most stunning results from the ongoing playoff series.
However, the club was quick to put to bed any fingers being pointed at them come the second game of the series. Defeating Orlando comprehensively 111-96 to restore parity in the series, Milwaukee immersed us in a display more befitting of the moniker of outright favourites crooned for them.
Back at the defensive best the last time around, Milwaukee is set to take a 2-1 lead at the end of the four quarters today. They are just way too well rounded and lethal a defence, a side which has nonchalantly come up with the blocks and rebounds to placate sides.

Dream 11 Picks
Elevated minutes on the court have resulted in a string of well versed displays from D.J. Augustin. The Orland Magic man came up with 10 points for his side the last time around along with a neat amount of dimes to see us opt for him as our point guard for the day.
He got just 12 minutes on the court the last time around for Milwaukee but Donte DiVincenzo needed only that time to show what he’s capable off. His ability to move to the flanks and shoot from the corners saw him drop 11 points to see us make the Milwaukee Bucks man our first pick in this docket.
As Wesley Matthews keeps regressing in form, Pat Connaughton keeps upping the ante. The shooting guard delivered a staggering 15-11 double-double for his side the last time around, one which makes him a must have pick at a measly 6.5 credits.
At just 5.5 credits and 9 points to his name the last time around, Kyle Korver is an instant pick for us from Milwaukee for the day. Orlando meanwhile will see us opt for the imperious James Ennis III with the player making the most of the trust reposed in him by opening the zone to lay down triples for his side.
Yet another game winning performance from Giannis sees him retain his place as our power forward for the forthcoming clash. He came up with a tenacious 28-15 double-double to his name the last time around, one which was a testament to his stature as the side’s focal point in both attack and defence.
He’s an exnihilating player, a name who has hammered down his spot in Milwaukee’s side given his presence inside the paint. With 20 points the last time around, the electric Brook Lopez was an untenable player inside the paint, someone whose crossovers made him an unstoppable figure.
Despite getting no support from the rest of his counterparts, Nikola Vucevic has still risen to his side’s clarion call. The centre dropped a 32-10 double-double the last time around as his tenacity saw him yet again wage a lone but effective battle for the side.
The consummate ease with which he’s coax his way the double-doubles see Giannis be our star player while Nikola is the pro player.
